You probably need to build cvs and rcs with RCS_LOCALID=NetBSD

If you look inside the relevant ",v" file, you will see that the text
in the $Id or $NetBSD line in the file is always one revision out of
date.  The working copy of the file is modified when it is checked out
(see documentation for the checkout -k option), but by default
"$NetBSD" is not recognised as a magic marker for stuff that needs to
be modifed during checkout.
